Explore Bowdoin selectivity

<p>I recently got an email for Explore Bowdoin and I was wondering how selective it is. I would like to apply as early as possible, but I am not very fond of my SAT (2020). I am going to take the ACT in September, but that is a bit late as the application is due September 28 (for the November dates). Would it be safer to submit my application early with my 2020, or should I wait for my ACT score (which I feel can be much higher than my SAT score)?</p>

<p>Also, for those who went, how was the experience?</p>

<p>I’m also super curious about explore bowdoin’s selectivity. </p>

<p>And stresswaves, don’t stress out about your SAT. Bowdoin probably won’t care that much. It’s an SAT optional school :)</p>

<p>anyone know any info on selectivity?</p>

<p>Bowdoin is highly selective. [Go</a> here for admissions stats for he class of 2016](<a href=“http://www.bowdoin.edu/admissions/glance/index.shtml]Go”>http://www.bowdoin.edu/admissions/glance/index.shtml).</p>

<p>torasee, thank you for the reply but my question actually pertains to a program they offer [Explore</a> Bowdoin 2012 (Bowdoin - Admissions)](<a href=“http://www.bowdoin.edu/admissions/explore/index.shtml]Explore”>http://www.bowdoin.edu/admissions/explore/index.shtml)</p>

<p>APPLY APPLY APPLY!!! I did the November program last year and it ultimately led to my decision to apply to Bowdoin ED2 (got in ^.^). Don’t worry about your SAT score; just write a good essay. My SAT score wasn’t super high either and I still got into the program. The program is selective but just make sure you write about an experience that you are truly passionate about and that has impacted (truly impacted) your life.</p>

<p>It is a score optional school and has been since 1969, so who cares about scores?</p>

<p>does anyone know if the Personal Essay required on the application is the same one for the regular application? thanks!</p>

<p>Bowdoin requires an essay which is seperate and different from the Common Application essay.</p>
